The local authority broadband plans are designed to support projects that deliver superfast broadband for 90% of premises and universal 2Mbps standard broadband. In addition, communities in locations that do not benefit from an upgrade to superfast broadband under the local authority project are eligible to apply for a grant from the Rural Community Broadband Fund to support community-led superfast broadband projects.
